To mark Learn @ Work Week, the CLA Government Library and Information Management Professionals Network invites organizations to participate in a National Job Shadowing Program.

Within the library community, a number of job shadowing programs exist in the LIS schools but few programs, if any, exist for working professionals.

The goal of the program is to provide members of the library and information management community with opportunities to learn more about what our colleagues in other organizations or sectors do.

The benefits of the a National Job Shadowing Program include:

Host organizations will also the benefit of having their environments / issues / problems looked at by an outsider with an understanding of issues faced by information professionals and organizations.

To host one (or more) participants, please complete the registration form.

During Canadian Library Month, a list of job shadowing opportunities will published. Participants can select the sites of interest and make contact with the host organization.

Note: You do not need to work in a government library or information management environment to participate. This program is open to all members of the Canadian library and information management community.
